Reminder: LAFMS featured in The Experimental Impulse exhibit at REDCAT Gallery

on Thu, 12/15/2011 - 16:02

The Experimental Impulse, part of Pacific Standard Time, looks at explores the pivotal role of experimentation in Los Angeles in the years immediately following the city’s emergence as a vital artistic center. The exhibition offers new insights into the understanding of developments in critical art practice after 1965 and bridges the gap between these histories and more recent approaches to artmaking.

Consisting exclusively of reproductions and facsimiles of materials culled from publications, institutions, and personal collections, as well as a series of recent video and audio interviews conducted for the exhibition, The Experimental Impulse reflects on the networks of exchange and support structures that underlie the history of art in Los Angeles.  The LAFMS contributions include rare photos from the archives of Fredrik Nilsen and various recordings from members of the LAFMS. The exhibition run until January 15, 2012.

This Saturday, December 17 at 3pm at REDCAT, join Thomas Lawson, Aram Moshayedi, Fiona Connor, and Benjamin Tong as they discuss the research process behind The Experimental Impulse.
